If you've been keeping up, you know I've been collecting a few more chickens. This time Bantams. I can't believe how easier they are to keep. And, QUIETER! Well, why not? It makes sense. Smaller bird. However, I've noticed their appetite is much more than the larger fowl.
To get to the subject of this post, I had an old, run down, cut apart tractor I knew I could use IF and when I found the right birds for my collection. (Ha! Collection! HA! Obsession is more like it...) After the quarantine and introductory period, I'd house them with the big girls (in the big house) Well, that didn't work out so, I decided to build an area strictly for the Banties.
First, I gathered all the old run pieces and materials I had - temporarily giving them a secure area to roam. Next, I'd work out a plan and implement a design for said area. I built their very own coop (The Bantam Barn) and constructed an area next to the large fowl. There's actually 2 posts covering the Barn. The link is the finished product. Feel free to journey further back on my blog and check the entire build.
